NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Long-time Disney communications executive and PR agency veteran Joe Quenqua has joined 42West as a Managing Director based in its Los Angeles office. Overseeing teams on both coasts, Joe will expand the company's offerings deeper into the filmed and digital content space as well as live events. The announcement was made today by 42West co-CEOs  Leslee Dart, Amanda Lundberg, and Allan Mayer.

Quenqua assumes his new role effective immediately, working alongside Managing Directors Susan Ciccone, Linda Guerrero, Tom Piechura, Sarah Rothman, Amanda Silverman, and Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson

"Joe's many years of experience in the film world, not to mention his recent success in the digital, streaming, and live events spaces, make him a formidable addition to our staff," Dart, Lundberg, and Mayer said in a joint statement. "We are thrilled to welcome him to the 42West family."

"I have had the honor of enjoying both personal and professional relationships with Leslee and Amanda for more than two decades," said Quenqua. "I am extremely grateful to both of them, along with Allan, for giving me the opportunity to join and help build this already world-class team."

Joe most recently served as Executive Vice President at DKC (Dan Klores Communications), heading both the firm's national entertainment practice and its Los Angeles operations. In that role, Joe built and led a bi-coastal team that executed both corporate and consumer campaigns for such major clients as Amazon Studios, Netflix, HBO, The Walt Disney Company, Viacom, NBC/Universal, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Westfield Corporation, QVC, Conde Nast Entertainment, Discovery Communications, Feld Entertainment, FathomEvents, Broad Green, and Relativity Media. Joe was also integral to the creation of DKC/O&M, the PR industry's first national Broadway and live events division.

He also served concurrently as the head of Global Communications and Worldwide Publicity for Disney Theatrical Group.

Prior to Disney, Joe served as Vice President of Film in the New York office of mPRm Public Relations, leading both theatrical release and award campaigns for various studios and independent distributors.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE).

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
